Default Need help Identifying a shotgun

I just found an old shot gun when going through some of stuff I recently received from my grandfather. All I know is that it is a 16 gauge pump action shotgun that has no choke and it has the markings "western fie" on it. I have no idea whether it is supposed to be "western field" or if its a knock off. I apologize if I'm asking a stupid question. Shotguns are not at all my forte. I'll post pictures soon if it would help anyone identify it for me.

Default More information.

After nearly going blind I have somewhat been able to read another heavily worn inscription on the side of the shotgun what is left if it is "EL 30 SB-562A". I'm thinking the EL is what is left of the word model.
